Don McLean has earned about $ 150 million over the course of his 50-year career, and while his 25-year-old girlfriend Paris Dylan wasn't even alive when his hit & # 39; American Pie & # 39; debuted in 1971, she certainly reaps the benefits of his success.
The 73-year-old singer spoils the former Playboy model, which he hopes to make his third wife someday, with lush travels around the world, private jets and designer clothing.
The jet-setters, who are currently on tour in the UK, are rarely apart, and it is estimated McLean has spent no less than $ 300,000 on travel in the past year, and they have no plans to delay.

& # 39; I have a wonderful girlfriend and she travels with me everywhere & # 39 ;, he told Daily Mail last month. & # 39; We went to 85 cities last year and this year we're going to about 85. We go together everywhere and she's so helpful. She does everything I need, we have a very good situation. & # 39;
The two met when she was hired to manage his social media accounts in 2016, and their relationship flourished quickly.
& # 39; She was a big fan of mine, & # 39; he said, & # 39; and I fell for her. & # 39;
Dylan agreed that it was love at first sight and told Daily Mail: & Oh, I liked him a long time before I met him. About seven or eight years earlier. My mother listened to him, I loved his music. & # 39;
She posted a photo with the singer on social media in November 2016 for the first time, saying she & # 39; grateful & # 39; was for Thanksgiving.

McLean & # 39; s romance with Dylan came to his second wife, Patrisha Shnier, only a few months after completing his divorce, with whom he had been married for 29 years and shared two children.
Two months after McLean was arrested for domestic violence, Shnier filed for divorce for & # 39; adultery, cruel and abusive treatment and irreconcilable differences & # 39 ;.
McLean was rather reluctant about his relationship with Dylan, who is 48 years younger, but since they have expressed their love, they fill their Instagram pages with photos of those who live together in the high life.
The two only stay in private suites of luxury hotels, such as the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel at $ 7,300 per night in Los Angeles, according to The Sun.

The couple reportedly also travel first class or rent private jets when they leave. Hourly rates for private jets range from $ 1,200 to $ 13,000 per flight hour, depending on the type of aircraft.
Dylan, however, shared a picture of herself as she traveled from Los Angeles to Europe with the German airline Lufthansa in September 2018 and seemed to be in business – not first-class. It is unclear whether McLean was the one who took her photo.
It is not surprising that McLean and his ladylove also enjoy good food, and they were recently seen in La Grenouille in New York City.
The dinner-prix menu in the restaurant, which specializes in French cuisine, costs $ 172 per person, excluding wine. An addition of Royal Galilean, the Israeli Ostera Caviar, costs another $ 185 per meal.
Before going to the UK for the McLean tour, the couple traveled through Italy with stops in Rome, Milan, Florence and Venice.

In August 2018 they hung in Los Angeles with singer Ed Sheeran. Dylan filmed Sheeran and her friend who sang an acoustic duet of McLean & # 39; s hit & # 39; Vincent (Starry, Starry Night) & # 39; backstage during a charity concert and the video became viral.
& # 39; That would not be that people without her could see, & # 39; McLean said to Daily Mail.

In one photo she models a pair of Gucci sandals with a block heel of $ 730. She also has a Gucci bag of $ 1,390 that appeared in her snapshots.
Her go-to-tote is Louis Vuitton & # 39; s $ 1,400 Neverfull GM, which is usually seen over her shoulder or on her lap in her travel photos.

While you speak Market overview over his $ 150 million fortune in March, the singer revealed that he hates debt and buys everything in cash, even his houses.
& # 39; I bought a few houses – at one point I had four houses, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I have sold one and I am going to sell another and then I have two – one on each coast, which are simply incomparable, so I will never sell them. And they have risen a lot.
& # 39; I don't borrow money and I don't borrow money & # 39 ;, he added. & # 39; That's something else. I have no debts. & # 39;
